At Hilton Vet Hospital, we have our own in-house laboratory where we can do blood tests on your pet while you wait. The waiting time is usually about 15 minutes.
We have a state of the art Idexx Blood Machine, centrifuge and microscope to do important diagnostic blood tests, cytology, skin scrapes and urine tests on the spot. These tests are pivotal in making an accurate diagnosis.
In human medicine, the patients have no choice but to have a blood test before they go for surgery. This is required to rule out underlying problems before humans have their surgery.
In veterinary medicine, it is not compulsory but highly recommended before any anaesthesia or surgery.
